Great Food, Very Friendly Staff, and a Lovely View!

This is my second time to The Armenian Café and both visits have been great. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The service is prompt and the view from the patio is of Carlsbad Blvd overlooking the beach. It is becoming a habit to cruise the streets on my bike on weekends and... read more

Six of us sat outside on a very cool evening in February. The spunky and cute waitress turned on some of the gas heaters for us. The lamb shish-kebob was very tasty, the lemon chicken not so. An entertaining belly dancer was enjoyed by all.

This is an unusual little restaurant specializing in food from the Eastern European country of Armenia. We visited it on a quiet Friday afternoon, and got prompt, friendly service, even though our waiter said he was Mexican, not Armenian😄 That was a nice piece of humor that added to our enjoyment. Stop in and try it's!

We ate here twice last weekend, once for breakfast and once for dinner. The food was delicious and authentic -- loved the chicken souvlaki and breakfast potatoes! The atmosphere is homey, the service friendly and the prices reasonable. We will definitely be back!

The food, service and outdoor seating is great. I have been there at least 20 times and the food is consistently good. I don't recommend sitting indoors as it's a little stuffy.

Stopped here on a whim for late breakfast. What a find! Had Armenian coffee, soujouk and eggs with the best potatoes I've ever had. I never eat the potatoes but tried these and couldn't stop. Husband had a very nice waffle and ordered the soujouk as a side. It was so good we returned the next day. Oh, and from... More

How can you go wrong with a dog-friendly patio at the beach. The food is very good, healthy. The service is always reliable and friendly. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner here. It has been in Carlsbad for a long time, an established place.

I have a hard time seeing this pace that has been here for ever in such a great place so outdated....the patio is gorgeous, the inside is dark and depressing. Service is not the best, VERY slow, regardless of how many people they have. Food is average I feel the fact that the location is so great and people will... More

Food was very good but what was disconcerting was the belly dancing commotion outdoors. We had a toddler with us who was terrified of the last (and new) sounds, and the rest of us had to give up on conversation. This is not speaking to the quality of the dancer. It's just in this day & age such contrivances are... More

try the stuffed grape leaves. They were delicious. Food was of good quality and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. I would bring friends here
